All,

I'd propose the following

Definitions:

WebID
An HTTP URI with a #fragment which denotes an agent, when dereferenced a 
description of the denoted agent is provided in Turtle.

Authenticated-WebID
A WebID which has been authenticated using WebID-Protocol


WebID Protocol Requirements:

subjectAltName ... MUST be an HTTP URI and SHOULD contain a #fragment ...

WebID profiles ... MUST be in Turtle, and MAY be made available in other 
machine readable formats such as ...

WebID Verification Agents ... MUST support Turtle ... SHOULD support 
other machine readable formats.

Kingsley: I believe this would encourage best practise and push people 
towards #frags and turtle for interoperability, but also allow your and 
everyone's tooling to be conforming even when supporting ProxyURIs and 
the like.

Fair?

Best,

Nathan
